Attacked in workplace parking lot

Senators on the Committee which considered the bill, which was chaired by Sen. Steve Austria, saw fit to remove a parking lot exemption at the request of the cash-rich Ohio Chamber of Commerce. There is no place which can guarantee Ohioans their safety if their right of self-defense has been removed.

Man's nose severed, woman stabbed after leaving packing area plant

MONROE | A man's nose was severed and his woman friend was stabbed Friday when they were attacked in the parking lot at a city plant as they left work, Monroe police said. The suspect is the woman's former boyfriend, who remained at large, police said.

Yadira Zamora, 24, and Artemio Lozano, 24, were leaving Precision Packaging on Garver Road about 4:40 a.m. when a vehicle blocked the car they were in, Detective Brian Curlis said.

Zamora recognized the man in the other vehicle as her former boyfriend, Curlis said. When she opened the door, the man stabbed her in the side, then severed Lozano's nose and stabbed him in both arms, Curlis said.

Lozano still was able to throw his car in reverse, jump a curb and drive to his residence.

Zamora was in fair condition at Middletown Regional Hospital; Lozano was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.
